Health & Safety

Coronavirus Pandemic Protocols

During a pandemic, transmission of the pandemic virus can be anticipated in the workplace not only in the health care profession but from customers and coworkers in general work settings.

This requires Coral Operations and Service Managers, Field Supervisors and Safety Representatives to identify the hazard associated with pandemic virus hazards and to limit the hazard with the appropriate infection control measures. Coral Canada Wide Safe Work Practices are provided to assist operational management implement safety programs including training and processes consistent with hazard levels anticipated.

Operations and Service Managers, Field Supervisors and Safety Representatives will implement and enforce this Safe Work Practice.

Infection Control

  • Infection control measures are to be implemented before a virus risk is identified. The most common route of season and pandemic virus is droplet transmission and indirect contact from person to person.
  • Prompt identification of persons with pandemic virus symptoms and restriction from the work site are key actions in controlling the spread of pandemic virus.

Hand and Respiratory Hygiene

  • Follow all local health recommendations.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. If there is no soap available use alcohol-based hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol).
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and put your tissue in a wastebasket.
  • If no tissue is handy, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
